What does a bird eat for Thanksgiving? Posted on November 26, 2014 by dinajohnston No stuffing to go with his meat. I stood and watched this great blue heron try to eat this fish for at least 10 minutes. He kept dropping it, picking it up and flipping it. This was on a recent rainy walk at Circle B Bar Reserve.

your shots really show the feathering beautifully
Lovely series showing this behaviour, , while they are eating is a good chance to get images as they are otherwise engaged….lol.
Yummm! Armored Catfish – it’s what’s for dinner! Nice series, Dina!
Such amazing creatures, I absolutely never get tired of watching them fish and even find how they eat to be quite interesting…Great photos.
Great meal for a great bird!
Great photos! Maybe he was just savoring his meal! 🙂
Great capture! I guess the unlucky fish can’t be too thankful however! So does she manage to gulp that pretty big thing down her long/skinny neck okay?? If eaten, does the unlucky fish get swallowed wriggling all the way as well?’
